2. Where to Use AppleScript > 2.1. Script Editor

Script Editor

A script editor is an application such as Apple’s own Script Editor (located in /Applications/AppleScript)—a general development environment where the user can create, edit, test, and run AppleScript code. A script editor application will almost certainly be central to your experience of AppleScript. Although you may use AppleScript code in other contexts, those contexts will generally provide no facilities for working on that code. Thus, no matter where you intend to use your code, you will first develop it in a script editor; if you wish to use it in some other context, you’ll transfer it to that context from the script editor when you are satisfied that it is ready. If, using it in that other context, you discover there’s a problem with it, you’ll probably bring the code back into your script editor to test and improve it.
